Children are an important and special part of our congregation. We offer multiple ways for children to come to know how much God loves them! Check some of these out below. 

Kids Connection Hour: Kids Connection Hour is like Sunday school but with a twist! At 10:00 a.m. on Sunday mornings during the school year, we provide a Montessori-like learning environment that offers substantive and meaningful opportunities for faith development. Children begin with a combined gathering with music and a Bible story. Then, they will rotate through various stations at their own pace, learning about the Bible story for the week in various ways. We use the new PC(USA) curriculum, Follow Me. This curriculum helps kids learn about what following Jesus really looks like in daily life. 

Friday Night Faith: Friday Night Faith (FNF) is a Parent’s Night Out program that provides educational and transformational programming to inspire kids to look at the world through the lens of love and faith. FNF includes a kid friendly dinner, crafts, recreation, music, Bible Stories, and lots of fun. The program is intended for children entering Pre-K through 5th and meets multiple times throughout the year. This summer, Friday Night Faith will take place  June 30, July 28, & August 25. Registration for Summer 2023 is now open! REGISTER HERE

4, 5, 6ers: 4th, 5th, and 6th graders have the opportunity to join the 4-5-6’ers fellowship group for service-focused, fun quarterly gatherings.

Family Special Events: Northridge offers seasonal events for children and families. Some of the events we will host this year include an Outdoor Concert, a Family Christmas Eve Service, and an Easter Egg Hunt.

Children in Worship:  Northridge is focused on learning from and listening to each other, at all ages! Children are invited to lead in worship for the Children’s Sabbath day each year, and we celebrate their leadership in many ways throughout the year.

Nursery: The nursery is open each Sunday from 10:00 a.m. to 12:00 p.m. for our young children. Our trained and loving staff and volunteers provide a safe and fun environment for those foundational first moments.
